The headteacher of The Nobel School in Stevenage is “absolutely delighted” with student results in his first year at the helm.

Martyn Henson took over in September and under his stewardship the school has increased its overall pass rate at A*-E to 99.6 per cent – up from 98 per cent.

Results were up on last year across the board, with 53% achieving A*-B and 78% A-C.

“We are absolutely delighted with the results of our A-level students this year,” said Mr Henson.

“These outcomes are the result of considerable hard work, commitment and support from students, staff and parents

“They include some outstanding individual performances, particularly at the highest levels. We are especially pleased with the number of students who have achieved the highest A* and A grades.

“We are delighted that the vast majority of students have been successful in securing places at the universities of their choice. These results are significantly up on last year and underline the recognition from Ofsted that Nobel is now a ‘Good’ school.”
